HP: Think Big. Think Small. Think Beyond. Mabye Don’t Think CES 2011 for WebOS



Hmmm? Interesting. It looks like HP wants to make some noise all on its own and try and steal a little CES upstaging magic from Apple. Just about everyone has been expecting HP to unveil its WebOS Tablet at CES 2011. But an invitation to an event on February 9 that just came out is now making it look like HP wants to tout its horn away from the cacophony of CES 2011.

We might still hear some about this from Vegas this week, but I’m guessing HP wants to position its WebOS Tablet about as far away from the maddening me-too Tablet crowd as it possibly can. Only one problem with that strategy that I can see. And that is that HP will becoming in slightly after Apple announces what is expected to be news about iPad 2.

Should be a good PR fight to watch.

    I just don’t think that HP can save webOS… no matter how good it may be.

    I think that HP has proven to be it’s own worst enemy. They can’t deliver a product to the market to save their corporate lives. The yawning chasm between the number of slate units they ordered from the factory and the actual number of customers looking to buy, suggests real managerial incompetance, and no faith in their own product line.

    Their website is a real drag to negotiate, even once they have product and information. The page with the HP Slate 500 no longer links to the technical specs, but a week and a half ago, you couldn’t click on add to cart. Now you can add to cart, but if you want an extra power brick and plug, you can see it, but not click on add to cart.

    You can almost never tell that the even have a consumer oriented Tablet PC, and when you can figure that out, there’s nothing on the site to tell you why you might, or how it works, and it isn’t self-evident.
